In our house, we call them "green harissa" and "red harissa". :D I've got the green harissa down perfect, but am having a bit of trouble with the red one. I don't know if that narrows it down at all... Lol.
Basically, I want to make the one in the bottom picture Tunisianbelle posted. :D

Me, too!! It's our traditional summer BBQ "salad", with Lebonese or Afghan bread. :D

We also put some of it in the mix for our BBQ burgers, too, and it gives them a totally unique flavour along with the other ingredients. :D

When I was pregnant the first time (ended in miscarriage), I craved it like no-one's business.

You dry LOTS of red peppers. Once dry, add garlic, tabil (corriander), and mix it all together to crush it up into a paste.
when you dry all the peppers do you leave the seeds in them too when they are crushed?...never tried it but i fancied having a go,and what do i eat it with please?...thank you xx :)

Mum leaves the seeds if she wants it to be hot.
You cook with it mostly, or you can use it for sandwiches just like with Marmite:D

My boyfriend uses harissa instead of butter. Lol. I use it to butter one side of a baguette, and use butter on the other, but him -- he could use half a tin on one baguette. I keep warning him about stomach troubles, but -- since when did a girlfriend's nagging actually be listened to?? :D

but i found that it makes my teeth hurt when i eat it. :confused: but it won't stop me now...

I love harrisa but when they were drying the chillies in the village my daughter picked one up and rubbed her face and it really burned her. :eek:

Most of the large UK supermarkets are beginning to stock some form of harissa.

Ill ask mum Tracy, but my guessing it depends on how dry the peppers are

i know sainsburys have a tiny jar of harissa, but it costs like 1.50! and it really is a very small jar.
